According to Fars News agency, during the meeting between Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami and General al-Balushi, the deputy commander of the Royal Army of Oman, the two officials underscored the importance of expansion of bilateral relations, especially in the field of defense.

Last April, Deputy Chief of the Iranian Armed Forces for International Affairs, Brigadier General Qadir Nezami, in a meeting with Commander of the Royal Navy of Oman, Rear Admiral Abdullah al-Raisi, in Tehran stressed the necessity for holding more joint military wargames by the two countries: "Iran and Oman hold very important joint drills each year and we hope that these exercises continue and increase and we can even stage them in joint cooperation with other friendly and neighboring states," General Nezami said during the meeting on the sidelines of the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium (IONS) conference. He expressed concern about insecurities and chaos in the region, emphasizing the need for further cooperation between the countries in different fields.
